Heartbreaking Divergent casting news!

We already know that Shailene Woodley of Secret Life of the American Teenager has been cast as Beatrice “Tris” Prior in the film adaptation of the novel Divergent and that Kate Winslet has signed on (possibly as Jeanine Matthews, leader of the Erudites), but there have been some new casting announcements.

Word is Nikita actress Maggie Q will play Tori, Zoe Kravitz (daughter of Lenny Kravitz) will take on the role of Christina, and Ansel Elgort has been cast as Tris’ brother Caleb.

Sadly, rumors that Hunger Games cutie Alexander Ludwig aka Cato would join the cast as Four were not true. 

He previously tweeted that he was screen testing for the movie. But later, in his tweet to celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, Ludwig said: @PerezHilton i will not be. Too similar to the hunger games but i hope the fans are happy with how the rest of the casting goes! #muchlove

Cue breaking hearts everywhere.
